At 49 tracks over two CDs, THE SINGLES PLUS is a fine overview of the Platters, the seminal vocal group of the early rock and roll era, matching beloved hits like "The Great Pretender" and "Only You" with more obscure gems like "Java Jive."
This is a fine two-disc anthology of the Platters which manages to combine both the classic early hits ("Only You," "The Great Pretender," "Twilight Time," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes") when the group was led by Tony Williams' sweet tenor, and the later uptown soul hits ("I Love You 1000 Times," "With This Ring," "Washed Ashore") that featured the spirited vocals of Sonny Turner. The result is a nearly seamless overview of this important group's history. ~ Steve Leggett
